I have a new member in my family. It is a cat. I call it Keket.

Keket has soft white fur and likes to lick its paws. It is also curious and likes to explore its new surroundingIt seems like milk and fish alot and wait eagerly as I prepare its meal.

Besides the cat that my father took from the road is very important for me. It give some lesson about “cat talk”. When it is near me it always purrs. The expresses friendship with me. When I do my homework it often  bumbs its head with mine. I know this the way to say hello. When it is curious it sticks its whiskers straight out and twitches with excitement. Sometime it approaches something carefully with ears pricked foward. This shows its alert. When it stalk a bird under the banyan tree beside my house it waves its tail.  This shows that it is trying to make up its mind whether to creep or pounce. As soon as it make up its mind the waving tail usually stops.

Of course, I sometimes get angry with Keket. When it feels threatened it hisses and spits. It thrashes its tail and its fang. Its ears lie flat and its eyes dilate.
